So I just started my search for an engagement ring diamond and checked several sites and rankings. She really likes this ring from David Yurman: http://www.davidyurman.com/products/wedding/engagement-rings/dy-capri-pave-engagement-ring-with-blue-sapphire-inwr1099rplbs_b.html#
Obviously there would be a diamond in there and I got these specifications on the ring: DY PAVE CAPRI ENG RING RD 1.32 H VS2
Price $ 20,800
Weight 1.32 ctw
I quickly learned through research that DY and others are overpriced and that sites like Blue Nile offer better value. So basically I’m looking for a Round Cut, Brilliant, D or E color range, SI2-VS1, 1.32-1.65 ctw., With a maximum price of $ 12,500.
Eventually I saw a nice diamond on Helzberg (GIA Report # 6177592547) for $ 11,999 (which can still be overpriced).
Thanks for your help!
